I was so excited to find out about this awesome Chalky Finish Paint from Krylon! I couldn’t wait to try it and tell you all about it. Oh my goodness, love it! Thank you Krylon for providing the paint for this project.

Dresser makeover, remove the back and repurpose, Repurposed Shelf with Krylon Chalky Spray Paint

I had the top piece of this dresser left over after I repurposed this dresser. The carving was so awesome, I knew that one day I’d repurpose it in to something. See this dresser makeover right here: Awesome dresser, some people got annoyed that I removed that piece.

One day this shelf from Decor Steals popped up on my Facebook feed, and I guess you can see what happened next!

Here what I used:

  • 1 Ikea pine shelf board, it was a little shorter than the shelf
  • 3 1 1/2″ screws
  • Dark Stain
  • Krylon Chalky Spray Paint
  • Salvaged wood piece

1. Attached the pine shelf board to the piece of salvaged wood, I predrilled and used one screw on each end and one in the middle.

2. Stain both of the boards with your choice of stain color. The dark stain is what you will see when you sand/distress your piece.

3. Spray paint your piece and let it dry according to the manufacturers directions.

4. Use a sanding block to sand the painted area so that your dark stain shows through. You can sand a little or a lot…step back and look at it. Stop when you like it!

The Krylon spray paint does not require a top coat, so you’re done!

You can never have enough flat storage areas!

I saved money and repurposed something that I already had.

Look around your house and change things up, think outside the box.

  1. What color is the paint you used in the pic??

  2. Hi Debbie
    Live your website. I have an old farmhouse chair I leave outside. It has a hole in the seat where I put a plant. Would the Chalky Krylon paint stand up outside?

  7. I just saw your Facebook post about your lovely shelf painted with Krylon Chalky Finish Paint. Think I’ll put that on my Michaels shopping list. I’ve done a lot of painting with chalk paint that comes in a can and always have at least one brush to clean up, sometimes more. The spray version will be perfect for some of my smaller projects with no brushes to clean! Thanks so much for introducing me to this great product!
